The Presbytery

This is the summit and crowning space of the cathedral focused on the High Altar.Earth is raised to heaven and heaven is brought down to earth.

 

In the centre is the tomb of Herbert de Losinga, who founded the cathedral in 1096. The Bishop’s throne remains where he placed it, behind the High Alter.
